The 30-year-old model, who became famous last year when she wore the London Marathon in her underwear, would be on the list of hopefulness for producers to offer diversity to the show amid previous criticisms.

Insiders told Mirror: & # 39; Previous years were criticized for a lack of diversity among the participants. This year, producers are determined to have more variety … They want all shapes and sizes to participate – not just a stream of identikit men and women. & # 39;

Love Island is enveloped in controversy after the suicide of former participants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.

In addition to criticizing the aftercare given at the show, fans have been more affected by the lack of diversity in the show regarding body image.

Jada, who is organizing a podcast that promotes body self-confidence, would be the perfect candidate for the show to improve the look of the show.

The insider continued: Gezien Considering the nature of the show, it is important that participants feel the body confident because they spend so much time wearing chunky clothing or bikinis while sunbathing and hanging out while swimming pool.

& # 39; Jada would be a perfect choice because she has a passion for body positivity – and even appeared on Good Morning Britain in her underwear before she had the marathon …

& # 39; Producers have talked to her extensively and hope they will show her later in the series. & # 39;

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jada for comments.
